We stayed there for 1 night prior to flight departure. Situation is ok, the neighborhood is a bit shabby but no issues to relate. We got lost when arriving by car, we called and Arthur came straight over to show us the way. Arthur and his wife are very friendly and I must say this really lightens up the place. The room we stayed at was at the entrance, it was clean and well cared. We thought it would be noisy, but we slept through the night and the alarm clock woke us up. The diner warmly proposed is good, though a bit pricy. Morning Breakfast is plentifull and helps you start a good day. I recommand the stay which gives a more human touch to hotels that are more impersonnal.

Room Tip: Room at the entrance is quiet.

Very comfortable, friendly, relaxed guesthouse.
Good food, even organised sandwiches for family arriving late at night from airport.
Nice friendly welcome.
Will stay again when picking up from airport.

We stayed here 3 nights before picking up a tour of South Africa. It was a great hotel with lovely ambience, spacious clean and well appointed rooms and hosts who really know what excellent customer service is. We had great breakfasts and dinners in their grounds, free pick up and drop off at the airport and they helped organise a sighseeing trip for us. We felt like part of the family andnothing was too mmuch trouble for them. I thoroughtly recommend this hotel and it was great value.

Having read all the reviews we decided to stay at Sunrock Guesthouse on our last night in ZA in February , and we were not dissapointed...
You know that some people run business `s proffesionaly but without that something called wow..
The owners here provide a proffesional service whilst making your stay an occasion.
Rooms are large with freash white crispy sheets on very comfortable beds . Our room was very clean , with NO noise after 22.00 hours . An honesty bar is provided with a brie dinner and a great breakfast. What more could you want.

We arrived late at night at the Jo'berg airport and were met promptly by our driver. Guesthouse was very short distance away. We arrived after Reception had closed but our room was ready for us; clean, no noticeable noise and a nice night's sleep. We also left before Reception opened but checkout was not a problem.

Ideal choice for a short stopover after arriving late at the airport. We were picked up right on time and the five minute journey to the Sumrock was easy. The room was perfect for what we needed and the fact that we overslept and missed breakfast was no problem for the Sunrock staff - we were asked what we'd like and it was cooked for us straight away. All in all a perfect choice for us

Before I say anything else about Sunrock, I want to say this: Arthur and Ina are awesome! They were both great to chat with, especially Arthur with his safari stories. They were SO welcoming and friendly and they both very much went out of their way to be helpful, wonderful hosts.

For instance, we stayed the night here and then our flight out was at 8pm that next day. They had no problem letting us check out of our room late, hang out at the pool that whole day, and then getting us to the airport. Even more: we had a couple of friends staying down the road at another property. Not only were they enthusiastically invited to join us for dinner, but Arthur arranged transportation for them back to their hotel that evening AND invited them to hang out at the pool & bar with us the whole next day no problem. Third example: We wanted to order a pizza at lunch but didn't have cash. Ina placed the order for us, paid for it, and then charged the amount to our room so we could use a credit card. Little things that other places would never do but made a huge impression on me and ended up African trip on a high note.

Anyway, aside from the amazing hospitality, our room was clean and spacious...and the per night rate was very reasonable. The honor bar area was comfy and fun to look around and included a pool table and two working computers with Internet (which was awesome after almost a month with no online access). Great pool to lounge beside. And a couple of chubby dogs and a parrot to keep an eye out for!

As a big fan of eating, I'd be crazy if I didn't mention the food. Both breakfast and dinner were delicious! At dinner, there were these fantastic pumpkin dumpling thingys that were to die for...drool. (Very poor description, I know but just trust me on this one.) We unfortunately left before the BBQ dinner that evening but I heard from our friends that it was also amazing.

Even though the area seems to get a little sketchy due to close proximity to the airport, I felt very safe at Sunrock. I would 100% stay at Sunrock again and would recommend it to anyone in the Joburg area.

Room Tip: There are a few different room options so perhaps inquire upon booking. Some rooms are large and hav...
